The Jackson Public Library, in conjunction with the NH Cooperative Extension, will hold a series of 6 weekly Spring Gardening presentations keyed to “Gardening in the North Country”. These presentations will take place at the Library located in Jackson village on Rt. 16A. The sessions will be held weekly on Wednesdays evenings starting on March 5th running through April 9th. They will all take place at 7pm.
These presentations are aimed at anyone who would like to learn about gardening and also to enhance the knowledge of those who have gardened here in the valley for years. The presenters will be Olivia Saunders MS Soil Science, agent at the UNH Cooperative Extension in Conway, Ann Bennett Jackson resident gardener and author of weekly gardening articles for the Mt. Ear newspaper for 35 years, Jackie Hamblet Certified NH Master Gardener and Dr. David Walker, who lives in the valley and raises and shows prize dahlias.
The presentations will culminate on April 9th with an open forum round table where questions and topic ideas will be taken from those in the audience. These programs are free and open to the public. For more information call the Library at 383-9731.
